July is another calm month for the literary world with few awards and a short festival calendar. Also the list of books being published is on the short side but there are some interesting reads coming up. In the below list I have included several books in translation, by writers from Israel, Germany and South Africa among others. The Reason I Jump has been translated from Japanese by David Mitchell and his wife, originally just for private use, as his own son has autism. You can read about his experiences as well as an extract from the book in this article in the Guardian.
